Power to weight...

So if my calculation is correct this bike will make about 50bhp. A reasonable amount of power for the indicated 83kg dry weight. Still, for £35k I think I'd rather fill my garage with a different bike for every day of the week instead!

Back to sanity

At last we seem to be entering an era where GP bikes can be bought and not leased. Now a team can recover some capital investment at the end of the year by selling down to national riders. This type of rationale kept the grids full during the 70s and 80s. £35K is not a lot if you are a professional team.

BHP is an old imperial measurement whereas kW is the metric version of the same thing (in a similar vane as mph and km per hr). 37kW equates to 49.6BHP
